I’ve always recommended against the use of carpet cleaning with hot water extractors (also known as steam cleaners or carpet shampooers) because most of them leave the carpet damp, setting the stage for mold growth. They can also leave a sticky film on the carpet that just attracts more dirt.
Then I saw the Bissell ProHeat CleanShot deep cleaner. This system works much better than any steam cleaner that you can buy or rent. And, for about the same price as renting one, you can have your own to use whenever you want. (If you have light-colored carpets like I do, a deep cleaner will come in handy quite often!)
First of all, the Bissell ProHeat contains a tank that heats the water, whereas most systems do not. This makes for more effective deep cleaning. You’ll be amazed at the amount of dirt and Grime that the Bissell ProHeat CleanShot removes from your carpet. (You can turn off the built-in heater to clean more delicate surfaces.)
The other main benefit of the Bissell deep cleaner is its DryAire system, which blows hot air across the carpet to jumpstart drying. This prevents mold and mildew from forming on the carpet after cleaning. While other deep cleaners leave your carpet damp and sticky, the Bissell deep cleaner leaves the carpet clean, fresh, and renewed.
The CleanShot also makes heavy-duty spot-cleaning easy. With the push of a button, the machine shoots out a stream of concentrated cleaning solution on the stain so that you don’t have to go over the same spot several times to remove it.
Finally, the Bissell deep carpet cleaner features Microban technology that prevents, mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria from growing inside the machine.
As an allergy sufferer myself, I recommend against steam cleaning your carpets – unless you use the allergy-friendly Bissell deep cleaning system.
